Teardrop Wingspan (Ridge Wings)
Pattern has now been update, any issues please PM
The Teardrop Wingspan works on the same principles as the original Wingspan, designed by Maylin of Tri’CoTerie.
This shawl comprises of wings that are made from the inside out, and are joined as you go.
The joining method in this pattern also gives a raised ridge, adding to the design.
You will need to understand how to knit using Magic Loop (this is usually used when making socks and there are many videos available to show this method), and using circular needles.
Each wing is 60sts in length, but the maths can be adjusted for a 90st wing also.
The length of each wing from top to bottom 13.5”, depth of shawl 9” and the inside neck measures 56”
420m of yarn will make 13 wings (picture depicts 12)
